Urban Renewal Guidebook
KPMG and Clayton Utz
Right across Australia and around the world, massive opportunities exist for cities to improve their competitiveness, productivity, liveability and economic viability through urban renewal. A growing number of Australia’s leading cities have already designed and launched significant urban renewal projects, and many are already seeing the benefits of their investments.
This report reflects many of the lessons and best practices that KPMG and Clayton Ute have gained from their combined experience in the field. They hope that, by compiling these insights and experiences into a single document, they can provide a comprehensive guide to urban renewal for city and state leaders while also adding to the body of knowledge on urban renewal.
However, as a ‘guidebook’, KPMG and Clayton Utz also recognise the limitations of this report and, as such, strongly recommend that readers solicit expert advice and counsel as early as possible in the urban renewal process
